<span style=”font-size: 10pt;”>”</span>The world has moved from largely extracting cheap, easy crude, to becoming increasingly dependent on unconventional forms of oil and gas that are much more difficult and expensive to produce.
<p id=”48a6″ class=”graf graf–p graf-after–p”>Oil isn’t running out, in fact, it’s everywhere — we’ve more than enough to fry the planet. But as the easy, cheap stuff has plateaued, production costs have soared. And as a consequence the most expensive oil to produce has become increasingly unprofitable.”</p>
Life will be more difficult in the future for countries that rely on oil exports as a large part of their economic well being. The ‘good ol’ days’ of an oil-rich country making an ‘easy’ living just exporting its natural resource is coming to an end.
National problems (slavery/racism, income inequality, pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war) are not solved with more national sovereignty.
